The API Legacy AXS console is headed for Japan and will make its home at the new Tanta studio, located in the Shibuya area of Tokyo.
The sale is being handled by API's exclusive Japanese Distributor Mix Wave, headed by Mr. Hiro Saika.
Several stories high, with spaces for rehearsal, performance, high end dining and parking, Tanta studio has been in planning and construction for over three years. The studio is close to Japan's National public broadcasting organization NHK. Studio A will house a 48 channel fully-fitted Legacy AXS console — the very first Legacy AXS for Japan — and Studio B will house a 32 channel automated 1608 console. Both the Legacy AXS and 1608 console will be delivered in early 2018, with an opening shortly after.
"Following the successful placement of two 64 channel API Vision consoles at NHK in Shibuya, Tokyo, we're excited for the opportunity of placing two additional API Consoles in the first new 'from the ground up' studio built in Japan in many years," says API's Director of Sales Dan Zimbelman. "Tanta is going to give the music scene in Japan a new, exciting alternative for super high quality audio recording."
